Dream of New Orleans - Oil Painting

For some of us, we dream of New Orleans, when we are not there.  What is it about New Orleans which captures the hearts and imaginations of so many?  It is a city where we can walk among the ghosts of those earliest settlers who carved a unique culture out of an often treacherous swamp.  It is a place where despite the hardships of epidemics, fires, and floods, its people have endured and triumphed down through the centuries.  It is a modern urban center; but it is also a mystical, ethereal dream carried on a breeze, drifting out over the evening, casting a spell over those who are willing to believe.
